Chinese Scroll Painting


painting of a scholar posing in an exterior setting. He is holding a fan in his left hand and his engaging look captures the viewer and draws us into the scene. Several scholar’s items are displayed on a side table with an attendant mixing black painting ink that is used for traditional Chinese brush paintings. The round wall opening in the background seems to lead into the scholar’s study. scroll
